I don't think so. There are many factions of loyal Americans, not just Trump supporters, that feel that the NFL players 'taking a knee' or linking arms during the rendition of our National Anthem is disrespectful. One faction of which I am personally aware are veterans of military service. Also, there are many of us who were taught respect for our flag (and the country it stands for) at a very early age and to not show that respect in public when called for is a sign of ignorance or worse.

I can't believe people are even into anything they can't play, ****ing children. I knew a guy that weighed in at 300 pounds and had a baseball card made of himself. Season tickets, wore the jersey, sports memorabilia collector, dude, get a life. A grown man with retardation that supports fake sports, hilarious.

Now the thuggery has even gotten to the level of college football.

I have tried all my life to remain free from bigotry, racism and all the "horrible" little things that make us "evil" and unworthy of social comment. I have failed. Over a half century of effort and I have failed.

Those blacks that could, did. All we are left with are those who "did not" and gripe about it.

I could be wrong. Won't be the first time, but imagine if not only myself but many others have come to the same conclusion. Maybe it's just that some of us are just a little tired of all the whining.

In the immortal words of a store manager my wife once worked for: "I can't be racist, I'm black!" (....and was later fired for theft!)

IT AIN'T ME! (If not, then whom?)

All throughout history, bending the knee has been a sign of submission to the master, usually to some leader, the king, or a slave owner, the majority of them throughout history and today in many of the North African and Middle East countries also being Black.

What about the non-black players that kneel? Do they have to understand that also?

Only untrue if you are selectively calling out, which you are.

The timeline began when Kaepernick began sitting on the bench and eventually he began to kneel.
